Award Winning

Just wanted to let readers know that I've heard from the Religion Communicators Council judges that Baha'i Thought will be a 2010 recipient of an Award of Excellence in Internet Communication. I'll be attending their awards ceremony in Chicago on April 8th and hopefully visiting the House of Worship the next day. I noticed some other Baha'is among the award winners and look forward to connecting with them and any Baha'is who might be attending this year's Religion Communicator's Congress.

Many thanks to all of you have who shown your support for this humble effort over the years. Also congrats to all the other Baha'is who will be receiving awards. Ya Baha'u'l-Abha.

    Well earned award. We thoroughly enjoy your work and the judges have rightly recognized you for it.


  6. Thanks everyone and thanks to Ellen for providing the complete list of award winners. I was not sure if I should have been the person to do so and was going to ask about it.

    Definitely encourages me to strive to make Baha'i Thought better. I'm also enjoying this Fast Bloggin' experiment and might do something similar for the 12 Days of Ridvan.

  7. SO WELL DESERVED. I love your blog, Phillipe. It is definitely necessary reading. Congratulations! Well done!
